Remembering a Hall of Fame Broadcaster

Ted, no one will ever take your place.

Theodore "Ted" Heusel passed away about 1:00 am 04/27/2007.  He will truly be missed.
Born in 1920, Ted broadcast in Washtenaw County for over 56 years.  This talk show host, former WAAM News Director, and one time Ann Arbor School Board president was famous for his well-known talk show, originally airing weekdays, then most recently, Saturdays from 3-5pm on 1600 Khz.  He worked at WPAG, WOIA and WAAM, all in the Ann Arbor area. 

Theodore Heusel grew up on Dewey Street near Burns Park.  He graduated from the old Ann Arbor High School, and received a BA in English and History from Eastern Michigan University, as well as an MA in theatre from The University of Michigan.
Ted's education was the foundation for a long and illustrious career in the broadcasting industry, and well as a rich history of involvement in community theatre and the school board.

A future hall-of-famer
